Podcast Topic: The importance of being an Infection Prevention Expert at Schools. Every year it is estimated that over 60 million school days lost every year to influenza and norovirus according to ISSA, costing schools billions of dollars in lost federal funding. And, according to the CDC, this year’s flu season is currently the worst over the past 10 years!

And consider this, according to a Keep Kids Healthy research conducted by Victory, over 40% of school custodians and administration admit to not having any infection prevention protocols.

Knowing these statistics, something needs to change! The way schools are cleaning, sanitizing and disinfecting is not working. We want to help!

Physical Removal Class

The Academy had the opportunity and pleasure to conduct an afternoon class on the use of the two basic principles of all cleaning;

pH and physical removal.

This animal hospital was using their disinfectant with a parvo claim to keep their floors safe.  What they learned was how bad of a tool the mop and bucket was in the process.

No matter what the product was, the pH was not being removed and therefore the disinfect film left on the flooring had become a breeding ground for all types of pathogens.

Now with the new process, they will be using, there will be a removal of the food source prior to using the disinfectant, which is precleaning and is part of any disinfection process no matter what the surface is.

Remember, mop ENEMY – Squeegee FRIEND!

Special thanks to Kathy Dube and GEM Supply for setting up this class on proper processing of floors and disinfection of surfaces.
